UNL hears two views on Christ

Two Christians came te Broyhill Plaza
on Wednesday to preach to UNL students.
But they came with far different messages.
On the mall by the Administration Build
ing, Michael Woroniecki, his wife, Rachel,
and their six children, who range in age
from four to 14, held signs and handed out
fliers that called for students to believe in
Jesus Christ.
Rachel Woroniecki said she and her hus
band had been traveling preachers for about
20 years. Their family just returned from a
missionary trip to Eastern Europe, she said.
“It’s drive and preach, drive and preach,”
she said. “It’s horrible, and it's glorious.”
Michael Woroniecki. who has a post of
fice box in Eugene, Ore., said his campus
tour started in August at Penn State Uni
versity and has taken his family through 25
different states. The University of Nebraska
Lincoln is the 20th college they have vis
ited this school year, he said. *
Traveling constantly is “a process of
struggles,” he said, but his calling keeps him
A few students asked how he sustained
himself and his family without a steady in
come, but his only explanation was: “He is

UNL Police review to be done soon
From ItHT H>port»
A report reviewing University of Ncbraska
Lincoln Police policies will be ready in the next
few weeks, a member of the review committee
said on Wednesday.
Ronald Ross, associate director of the UNL
Office of Affirmative Action, said the commit
tee, formed by Chancellor Graham Spanicr,
was close to releasing the report.
“We don’t want to rush the process,” he said.
“We don’t want to be so time-constrained
that we inhibit the accuracy (of the report).”
The committee was formed after Francisco
Renteria died in police custody. UNL Police
Officer Charlotte Veskma was the first officer
to confront Renteria, whom she thought was
wanted for violating a protection order.
The Nebraska State Patrol, the U S. Justice
Department and an independent investigator
are investigating the death.
“We don’t want to rush the process. We don’t want to be so time
constrained ... that we inhibit the accuracy (of the report). ”

Parking garage
plans include
9 potential sites
By PePra Jan»»on__
Senior Reporter
Plans for an on-campus parking garage,
which drew fire last year from UNL students,
are stalled for the rest of the semester, a UNL
official said this week.
Paul Carlson, associate vice chancellor for
business and finance at the University of Ne
braska-Lincoln, said UNL was taking a close
look at nine potential sites for the garage.
“We’re doing more research and more
analysis to try to determine which would be
the best site if we do, in fact, build a parking
garage,” Carlson said.
Carlson said UNL hired the campus Bureau
of Sociological Research to conduct a parking
survey on how students got to campus and
where they parked.
UNL will use the survey to determine
whether it needs a parking garage, and if so,
where it needs a garage. Carlson said.
Carlson said the bureau was analyzing the
results of the survey conducted on campus. He
said he did not know when those results would
be released.
“I did not set a timetable.' he said. “I want
them to do a good job."
UNL also has set up a committee to ana
lyze parking on other campuses. Carlson said.
In addition, he said, UNL is reevaluating its
own parking needs and its criteria for a park
ing garage.
UNL should be able to recommend a site
for the garage to the University of Nebraska
Board of Regents next semester, he said.
A proposal last spring for a 4 I/2-story. 416
stall garage next to the Nebraska Union drew'
protest from members of Alpha Phi Sorority,
which is located next to the proposed site.
Some of those members raised safety con
cerns about building the garage so close to the
sorority. They also were worried the garage
would draw more traffic into the already con
gested area.
UNL decided to take a closer look at all nine
potential sites partly because of those worries.
Carlson said.
However, Carlson said, the other eight po
tential sites also raised some concerns.
One potential site would be in the parking
lot south of the Canfield Administration Build
ing, he said. But in order to build a garage at
that site, UNL would have to buy the property
occupied by Wendy’s, Coin Fun, the UNL Cul
ture Center and Lambda Chi Alpha Fraternity.
Carlson said.
“That site has a lot of problems because it’s
a very expensive site,’’ he said. “If those build
ings weren’t there, that would be a great site."
Another potential site, located east of the
Temple Building, already has been planned as
the site of a garden for the Lied Center for
Performing Arts, Carlson said.
A fourth potential site, located southwest
of Westbrook Music Building, would have ac
cessibility problems, because a major street
runs past the area, he said. Also, he said, UNL
would have to buy the property that houses the
Mormon Student Center.
A potential site located south of Bancroft
Hall and west of Selleck Hall already has been
planned for future classroom use, Carlson said.

Adjustments making happier ears at Memorial Stadium
By ItobMca Ottmana___
Staff Reporter
Adjustments to Memorial Stadium’s new
speaker system have brought noise to a com
fortable level, a project manager said.
Joe Good water, project manager of facili
ties management at the University of Nebraska
Lincoln, said the sound system was not regu
lated by a set decibel level. It depends on the
noise level of the crowd, he said.
Consultants who designed the system made
many adjustments to it during and after the
first football game to coordinate with the back
ground noi9e of the crowd.
“We knew the first time we fired it up there
would be minor bugs and glitches,” Goodwater
The system was too loud during the first
game, Goodwater said, especially in the north
end zone where the largest speakers are located.
The adjustments made the sound more bal
anced throughout the stadium, Goodwater said.
Athletic department members have been walk
ing around during games to get feedback from
fans in each section of the stadium.
They heard no complaints, Good water said.
The Lancaster County Health Department
did receive some complaints about the loud
ness of the system from fans at the game, said
Bill Pugsley, assistant chief of the environmen
tal health division.
The majority of the complaints came right
alter the first football game, he said.
Pugsley said he took decibel readings dur
ing the second home football game.
The noise level ranged from 65 to 105 deci
bels, a common reading for a sporting event,
he said.
The high decibel readings came from the
crowd when the Comhuskers first ran on the
field and later during big plays, Pugsley said.
When he measured the decibel levels of the
speaker system, the readings were around 65.
“For that type of sound system, that read
ing isn’t particularly loud,” Pugsley said.
Pugsley said he found no big differences in
noise between the pre-game show and the an
nouncements during the rest of the game.
But the loudness of the system was a prob
